Ryan's image

Ryan Helton
Motorcycle Specialist

Good things happen to good people. We first met Ryan a few years ago, when he was exploring the ownership of a motorcycle. Not just any motorcycle would work for Ryan; he was looking for curb appeal, substance and performance. From his day job is as a Mechanical Engineer and knowing the value of fine details, his choice of an Indian Motorcycle was an easy one. After pleading his case to his bride of 4-years, her generosity and kindness has allowed him to buy two new Indian Motorcycles, she is a keeper! Ryan’s current ride, a 2018 Chieftain, allows him to ride in style and also share real-world experiences with our clients. It is his passion and far-reaching enthusiasm that ‘forced us’ to hire him. This is a guy who thinks you should have as much fun as he does, let him show you how…

Service Technician

Reverently code named ‘Cup-cake’, Travis reminds us that one of the toughest things today is finding the right people with the right skills and the proper attitude to excel in all they do, the ‘Cup’ is one of those people. Travis is a transplant from our Myrtle Beach store and brings his experience and attention to detail to our service department. Travis is addicted to two wheels and actually does not even own a ‘cage’, as he calls it. You can usually see him around town passing you on his bad-ass fat-tire Victory.

Holly Velthuysen image

Holly Velthuysen
Retail Specialist

Our retail specialist Holly always seems to have a smile on her face. We think it’s because she really enjoys the customers at Indian Motorcycle Charlotte. Way back in 2008, her boyfriend acquired a 2009 Chief Vintage in Willow Green/Ivory Cream from us and Holly began acquiring genuine Indian apparel. We knew her as a good customer for several years. Today she’s one the other side of the counter, helping customers find the apparel and gear they want.

Originally from Detroit and born into a family of firefighters, she worked in accounting for about a decade before becoming an executive sales assistant for a manufacturers’ rep group. Mark knew her background, so when an opportunity arose, our fearless leader gave her a call and the rest, as they say, is history. Stop in and say “hey” whenever you’re in the neighborhood.
